Your daughter will thrive as a Shelford girl

The world today is vastly different from the one in which Shelford was established back in 1898. We are, and always have been, a small school with a philosophy that extraordinary care creates extraordinary young women.

Although the history and traditions of Shelford are central to everything we do, our engaging and innovative programs reflect the latest in educational excellence and student wellbeing. Today, more than ever, we must prepare our girls to adapt, innovate and problem solve. To expect the unexpected, and work within a world where change is the only constant.

A values led education

Our values of respect, creativity, passion and integrity are the foundations of a culture where strong, independent and inspiring young women will thrive. Every student is encouraged to be creative and think independently, to have a passion for learning, and a respect for themselves and others.

At Shelford our greatest assets are our students, our staff, alumni and parents. We believe relationships and trust are at the core of what we do. Our students flourish because they learn in a community that nurtures, stimulates and challenges them, and in which they are encouraged to be courageous.

I am confident your daughter will thrive as a Shelford girl and look forward to welcoming your family to our school.
